Chinese comments upon Secretary Taft, his visit to China and present and prospective re lations between that country and America nre gratifying but by no means surprising. Mr. Taft appears to have done in China what he j has hitherto done in various other lands in both continents. He has created a most agreeable Impression both of himself and of the country which he represents, has allayed actual or po tential 111 will and has materially promoted confidence and friendship. Such achievements are not always within the power of envoys. They are not to be effected through diplomatic Intrigues or secret treaties, which may tem porarily govern official action, but which are Tain in their effect upon that public sentiment which must in the end be the basis of every lasting peace and friendship. They are the out come of directness and frankness and trans parent candor and the capacity not only to see but In some measure to appreciate and sym pathise with both aides of a subject— qualities which Mr. Taft conspicuously possesses. .There was indeed the most substantial ground for the doing of the work which Mr. Taft has done in China. There was need that it should be done, and there was needed for the doing of it only a revelation of the truth. Foolish and mischievous babbling, received in China at ! Immeasurably more than its real worth, had j caused some trouble. It had been hinted, j .•without the slightest ground in fact or com ■ mon senee, that the United States might scut- I tie out of the Philippines, leaving those islands . as a bone of ominous contention among other, powers; that It might abandon or countenance the abandonment of the open door policy in China, and that ;it might become guilty of all sorts of aggressions and Iniquities against China. We cannot greatly blame the Chinese for believing these things, or at least fearin~ jtUtJfcere mUbt bit Bouie truth, in. tXitau but It is gratifying to see how quickly and heartily they acoept an authoritative denial of them. There is one peculiar and unique cause for rejoicing at the hnppy turn which American nnd Chinese relations have thus taken. That X that this restoration of complete friendship and confidence occurs simultaneously with the opening of the new era In Chinese affairs. It was well for us to be on good terms with China under the old order of things. It is far more Important for America to be regarded as the true friend of China and to enjoy intimate relations with her at the very time when that country is adopting an enlightened constitu tional system and is experiencing that awaken ing which has so long been a subject of more or less visionary speculation. The future of <'bina is immeasurably great, and with the best features of that future, in diplomacy and in commerce, America ought to be and. if the present prondse holds good, will be closely and beneficently associated. ALL RECORDS BROKE\. On her second westward voyage the Lusitania Showed beyond all question her superiority to the swiftest vessels in the German merchant marine. England's supremacy at sea. tempora rily lost, is now restored, with a prospect of being retained for an indefinite period. It Is a proud day for the country which the new steam ship represents. As yet the Lusitania h:is nor proved her ability to maintain for a continuous trip a speed of twenty-four and three-quarters knots, on which If"- mall subsidy is made de pendent by contract There is ample opportu nity for that performance, however, inasmuch Ms the demonstration may be made at any time within a year. It is not considered advisable to push a vessel to the limit of her speed during the first few weeks of tier service. Xo matter bow well the bearings ;ire adjusted lo the pro peller shafts, a little wear is usually needed to reduce the friction to a minimum. Moreover. enough is known about the preliminary trials of the Lusitania to warrant the expectation that when the critical test comes she will realize the bones which have been cherished by the com pany which owns her. Though the greater part of the latest voyage of the Lusitania was accomplished at a speed without precedent, her passengers derived little benefit from the achievement. It was apparent from her position yesterday morning that she could not reach Sandy Hook early enough to come up to her pier Immediately, even if the engines were urged to the limit of their capac ity. But it can hardly be doubted that in the future the Lusitanla's passengers will usually be able to land on Thursday evening. If th*' Canard company should adopt a port in the English Channel as Its eastern terminal several hours would be saved by avoiding a stop at Queenstown ; an earlier start from Liverpool might be made, or a slight increase of speed would serve the purpose. Of the three possibil ities perhaps the last will be the most easily at tained. The world will be eager To learn at what cost in fuel consumption the Lusitanla's triumph has been won. possibly an effective comparison will not be feasible until she and the Mauretanla have both had a chance to exhibit their best powers, but in time it should he possible to get at the facts. The Deursehland's engines have a capacity of WfiQQ horsepower, and the Lusi tanla's were expected to develop between 66, (K*) and 70,000. Were the now Cunard liner equipped with the same type of engine as the Deut.schland she would require nearly twice as much coal, and that would be a pretty handsom • price to pay for a gain of a knot and a quarter or a knot and a half. If the use of turbine engines should Insure a perceptible economy, as hits been expected, there will be a discount from the expenditure otherwise necessary. Before any more new steamships are ordered by other companies definite assurances on this point are likely to be demanded. Til AT "LOAN MATTER." The very simple explanation by two of the Philadelphia capitalists nnd the le_'ul representa tive of the third mentioned in Mr. Anthony N. Brady's testimony involves a number of marked coincidences. Mr. Whitney, according to the latest light thrown on the mystery, must bave borrowed the same sum,. sloo,ooo, from each of three, nnd presumably four, men, all ..f which loans he paid upon tho same day and with An thony S. Brady's checks. Although some, per haps all, of these men were at the time directors of the Metropolitan Securities Company, and knew of the purchase of the Wall & Cortlandt Str<*»t Ferries line from Mr. Brady, through Mr. Whitney, they thought it nothing curious that shortly after the transaction they should i ive Mr. Brady's Checks from Mr. Whitney. Then there is Mr. Brady's cheek to Mr. Whitn >y him self for exactly the snm« amount to a cent as the checks to the four others. Was this a "loan matter." too? On the face of the story up to date, combining the testimony of Mr. Brady ami the assertions of the Philadelphia traction men, the "rake off" nil went to Mr. Whitney. Why did he bave a check for himself drawn to exactly the same amount as the four other checks, a circumstance so suggestive of a division? Could It have been a device for misleading Mr. Brady Into thinking the innocent and unwitting recipients of the checks in payment of loans were "in" with Mr. Whitney on the "rake off" 7 The implication of these explanations is very severe upon the mem ory of their late associate. STATE AIDED IMMIGRATION. A recent decision of Attorney General Bona parte Interpreting tho exclusion clauses of the new Immigration law seems to have occasioned some surprise in Southern communities now eagerly engaged in promoting immigration. Mr. Bonaparte held, In a test case prepared by the Ftate of Louisiana, that a Cuban farm laborer. Geronlmo Garcia, would have to be deported because an agent of the State Board of Ag riculture, in addition to furnishing Garcia with passage money, had promised that employ ment should be secured for him through tha board's good offices. Garcia had agreed on his part to pay back tha passage money out of his prospective wages. Attorney General Bona parte considered that the promise of employ ment was given In violation of the statute. which distinctly forbids the offering of such assurances to any alien of the laboring class. But neither Louisiana nor any other labor seeking Southern state should have expected a different decision. The law is clear on Its face, and the opinion of the Department of Jus tice coincides entirely with its earlier inter pretation of the law, made last March at the solicitation of Governor Ansel of South Caro lina. In that earlier opinion the rights of a state desiring to promote Immigration were fully denned, and It was shown that though a state enjoyed much greater freedom of action than any "corporation, association, society or municipality" within Its borders, yet neither the state nor any Individual or association had the power to enter into an employment contract with a foreign laborer. The state, for Instance, is permitted to advertise its attractions as a labor field, while no individual or association is allowed thus to solicit immigration by ad vertisement A state may also pay the passage of intending immigrants, out of Its own funds, or may accept contributions from Individuals to defray such expenses. Individuals may ad vance steamship fares, if acting separately and not in combination with other individuals. But corporations, societies and municipalities can not advertise or pay fares or even contribute money to the state authorities to induce immi gration. Thia constructivu, wa think, leuves tie states NEW-YORK DAILY TRIBUNE. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 11. 1007. nil the license they newt If they wnnt to en coorage immigration they enn do so by liberal advertising and offers of free transportation. Rut their functions should cease there: for the states are not themselves employers of labor in the technical sense, and if they have any employment to dispense it should po to citizens, not to aliens. Nor should any state act as a ffo-befween for Individuals or cor porations, furnishing them with labor under contracts which they themselves are not al lowed to make. Special consideration is given to the suite because It is not a competitor in the labor market and is not trying, like an in dividual or a corporation, to import aliens for its own advantage and to the possible detri ment of native laborers. A state must be pre sumed to act In good faith and only for the public benefit when it induces Immigration, looking solely to the development or the whole community and the greater prosperity of all classes of its citizens. In that respect It stands apart from the Individual or corporate employer, who has a more direct and a nar rower object in view. It can freely seek to recruit its population, If it sees fit; but it should not attempt to play the role of an em ployer of labor and offer contracts to aliens which the private employer Is strictly forbid den to make. CENTRAL PARK'S NEEDS. When it was suggested by Commissioner Wilt i-ox that Central Park needed renovating the public mind was not prepared for the Idea. The general Impression was thai Central Park, like any forest or grass land in the country, could take care of Itself without resurfacing, resod ding or replanting. Thai waa several years ago. since then the public lias s en enough <>r the parks eteady deterioration to realize that something must be done to arrest the progress of decay, and it will probably now accept ;ts necessary Commissioner Pnrsons's detailed rec ommendations. Central Park has not the chance to perpet uate itself that natural woodland and meadow in the country have. Its soil was originally poor, for the most part being that thin covering of rough rocks which is generally to l« i brand In the higher parts of upper Manhattan Island. The vegetation is further injured by the smoky nnd dusty atmosphere of the city, and the park is more and more crowded every year by visitors who trample Its lawns with constantly increas ing freedom, [ts roads, as Mr. Parsons ]>oitits out, were designed for the traffic of half a cen tury ago. They were not built to stand heavy automobiles, and it is no solution of tho prob lem to say that automobiles should not be per mitted to use them. The i!j> and down avenues of that part of the city, reduced In number by the park, are already crowded without forcing upon them a great part of the park traffic. Much better is Mr. Parsons's suggestion that modern roads adequate to modern traffic should be built. For the rest, the top soiling, manur ing and reforestation will surely have to be done sooner or later. The trees, as Mr. Parsons says. were planted fifty years ago, and many of them are passing their prime. New trees will have to be set our. s i that when the preseni ones die others will be ready to fake their places. Parks do not last forever, bur, iii;.- commer cial and manufacturing establishments, oeed an allowance for "depreciation." The r gnitlon of this has been too Blow. What is needed now is to have "a well organized scheme of restoration es "tablisbed and carried on year after year In an "intelligent and systematic manner." Only tn that way can the par!, be kept up so I renovation will not be an offence to the se so that we shall not some day have a park hur riedly remade, which in the newness of its tree- and lawna will look like a mushroom sub urb called into .-v-*' ![■•,. overnight by a spec ulative realty company. FOOLISH TALK /v rrn\. The pertinacity of would be n Cuba would be amusing if it were not at times pernicious. We have no idea that It will have any very serious result-. But it Is actually causing some expense and labor and anxiety, and some f its dupes have bad to be locked up which may or may Dot be a misfortune for them. Also, there are the possibilities t liar American int.-r vention In the i ■< !:; i m 1 may bave to b>' pro] on account of these petty deviltries arid that seme distrust and animosity may arise from them. But apart from these considerations this whole annexation-protectorate-revolutionisl bus iness is laughable. Note, for example, one of the latest trl of the inventive genius f the international hi larity purveyors. We are gravely told, upon the Indubitable authority of a Spaniard In Cuba who is so promlneni thai the majority ■ compatriots follow his advice, that :c> p< of the Spaniards La the island would like to become American citizens, that they arc now making efforts to that end and that they bave hitherto repeatedly "got busy" along the same lines with the same exalted ambition. Thej really feel surprised and not a little aggrieved that the Washington government has not eagerly assented to their scheme and has do! even paid any attention to it. What a chance it is missing to some scores of thousands of new citizens! Of course there are a few obstacles In the way. These Spanish gentle men are not Americans, they <io not live In the United States and are not subject to its laws, and do not comply with any of the legal and constitutional requirements of those who would be naturalized. But what of that 7 Why not count them in just the same? And s t) if any body in Prance or Russia or Tiinbuetoo wants to become an American citizen, why not take him mV Surest thing In the world to swell the. census of American citizens: And, while we are about it. why not put the canals of Mars under the contnii of our Public Service Commission? It may be worth while, however, before pass ing by this fascinating theme t v a considera tion <,f the Age of Ann or a contemplation of the Great Horn Spoon, to remark that there are the best of reasons for believing that the whole tale is a fabrication, and that the Span iards of Cuba have and have bad no BUcb notion or desire. That U because, in the llr.st place, all obtainable Information is t<» the effect that the Spaniards in the island are sane. Intelligent and discriminating people; and, in the second place, there is the most convincing evidence, from the utterances of their representative men and jour nals, that their ambition is to see Cuba remain independent and be developed into n stable and worthy nation, with which they ask nothing bet ter than to be honorably Identified. WABTBFI LNEBB. Once more the story of American wasteful* neftK~is being dinned into the ears of prodigals. Tbis time it is Professor Holmes, <»t the geo | logical survey, who calls our attention to the millions of tons of ore and opal thrown away by slovenly methods of excavation and utiliza tion, and to the billions of feet of standing tim ber burned by forest Ores, against which al most no preventive <r protective measures are taken. Even if Professor Holmes and his fellow prophets of disaster magnify the facts ten diameters, the evil they portray is ominous enough. *But. taken at its worst. It is trifling in comparison with the total results of the petty day-to-day wastefulness «»f seventy mill ion Americana. We say seventy million Amer icans, because there are a U-w million natives and perhaps ten million newly landed Immigrants with whom sane economy is a deep and control ling habit. Devastated woodlands and squan dered mineral wealth are the sensational as pects of the great national evil, and will prob ably continue to impress many persons who onlj laugh at the Imaginary wickedness of throwing away half-cigars unsmoked and letting the cook feed the family dog on the frigid remains of the daily roast. But the hard fact still remains, In spire of skepticism, that a nation of frugal < itizons in a lnnd as rich as ours could well en dure without hardship nil the ibcflry losses of timber, fuel, food supplies and minerals we have thus far suffered. Economy la an art which men acquire, as a rule, only through compulsion, and which. If not mastered in early years, is rarely learned. American business men enn therefore scarcely be Mamed for the "amazingly wasteful meth ods' 1 which more than one visiting committee of Europeans says it has found on every hand. City children who have revelled in nurseries filled with costly toys, replaced ad libitum when damaged; country children who never had an opportunity to learn the value of food and fuel ami the way those commodities should be pro duced and used; children In general of all ages and classes whom fond parents have refused to instruct systematically in the art of economiz ing, on the gentle theory that "they'll have to "get up against the hard world soon enmiirh "anyhow" — such children can never become efficient business men except through unusual genius and 'perseverance. And yet how many Americans have been brought up thus! How many of th« next generation, t«x>. are beln trained in the easy ways of prodigality! Some socialistic writers have blamed the wealthy classes for the outrageous extravagance of the times. The spendthrifts of gilded society and the men who squander fortunes for social and political prestige are, they tell us. guilty of corrupting "the good old American traits of fru gality and economy." But this view reverses cause and effect. The showy side of our na tional vice is misconstrued as the cause of recklessness in the kitchen, anthracite dissipa tion In the furnace, the disgusting habit of "treating," ostentation In the homes of work tngmen and people of moderate means, the lordly "tipping" system and nil the other famil iar failings of the generation. Hut follow the history of our eminent squanderers and you will find that they throw millions away be cause nobody ever taught them the art of mak ing the most of things. They hnve simply Imi tated unconsciously the practices of their elders and their comrades: and what thoy could not do with the food, raiment and pocket money their parents gave them they cannot do with the property they earn for Themselves. Our fa mous profligates, then, are only the unlucklest members of a large tribe; while their poorer companions' individual wfi=<-ef"i"<->«:<» Is too petty to attract the curious, they must suffer the wrath of the multitude. If one of the victims would only engage a statistician to compute the worth of property squandered or left un used by lus eighty million crftiea be might r*Ti der a great public service. For at the siirht of the billion-; of dollars frittered away annually by the "plain" people, the country might intro duce In every public school a compulsory course on "Making the Peonies Count." What won ders might such a course not work In time! The day would soon enmo when "Inter.-Met." stockholders could no more be looted as a pas time than a baby can be deprived of its stick of candy. The fame of having the "smallest brain on record" la one which anybody would ,be con tent to have posthumous. Though Identical In genera! design, the Losl tania nnd the Mauretanta are paid to differ from each other In many details. One was built on the Clyde and the other on the Tyne.

Besides holding first rank among the cities of tho -world In the manufacture of women's chocs, Lynn, named after a king's • two, has achieved distinction in other ways perhaps not so commendable as her Industry In turning out woman's footgear.

Still, there are plenty of would-be oommuners with Die spirit world left In Lynn, and the notoriety achieved by Mrs. M. A. S. P.

Entertained at Luncheon by Long Island Clergymen. Bishop Wlnntngton laajraas of London toll many experiences of his life !n London to tha clergymen of the Diocese of Long Island, who entertained him at lur.ch^n yesterday. The Bishop returned to New York on Wednesday afternoon from Boston, where he had por.e after attending the opening of th*> General Convention of the Episcopal Church In Richmond. Va. At noon yesterday he preached In Holy Trinity Church. Brooklyn, which was crowded to Its ut most capacity. The luncheon was held soon after the service In the gymnasium of Holy Trinity parish house. Canon Chase, the rector of Christ Church, Brooklyn, presided at the luncheon In the at>senc» of Bishop Burgess. In Introducing the Bishop Canon Chase said that the clergy and laity of Long Island, though they had never seen Wta. loved and admired him for his work In Lor.don. "We like you because we understand,"* said *-• Canon, "that In your own country they ''•• you •Chuckles.' showing the buoyant spirit with wtlci you enter Into the mighty battle against evil. We like you because you beat our beloved President in tfnnts. because you have shown us how to work in great cities, because as a friend of the rich and powerful you have had the courage to te!l then boldly that they are responsible to God * *- 9 way in which their money and power comes ta them." "I have been astonished." said the Bishop la reply, "with the warm reception I have been ac corded In this country. I expected one or two persons to receive me. but all of your people keni welcomed ma like an old friend. I never expected my own nickname would be brought up ■■'• trl * country." -I was thinking this morning while I was dress* Ing and shaving — I compose many of my li'ti* talks while I am shaving." he -went on. "of how hard Ii la for one la be thoroughly consistent In his life with what ha preaches and professes. Many of you who have snug little country vicarages and S» out to the good dinners the people of Long in '* give, may find it hard to live a perfectly consistent life. I myself am cursed with having two palaces. But I nnd that I can make both of these «***■! ta many ways for the poor clergy and the poor people of the diocese. "I don't like to talk about the simple life." Some time ago I did talk Is some boys about the 'slmpla life.' and a few days later I got a letter ■■ on» of them saying he had been leading the 'simple life that day. He said he had waited M Ipswich plat form for a train for four hours, with not even » sandwich. That seemed to constitute the 'simple life* to htm, and since then I have not used that term. "But I sometimes picture myself leading the plain life of the curate I once was. and I say to myself. •If you are not willing and ready at any time to give up your Fulham palace and London house an-1 the large stipend you receive *» bishop and return to the plain life of a vicar, you're not worth your salt.' " The Bishop then went on to ssaty t that he thought he had noticed in this country a slight line of de marcation between the church and what he termed "social service." The church and "social service, he said, are almost synonornous terms. All society, he Intimated, should be led and guided by the church. He thought that in England the churca performed Its duty in this respect a little more thoroughly than in this country. "My second thought while I was shaving." •»'« the Bishop, with a smile, "was the loss there Is to our laymen by clergymen not being natural." MORE ROOM FOR H. D. TAFT'S SCHOOL. Watertown. Conn..
